  2. 2. Forest biomass production potential and its implications for carbon balance

    Författare :Bishnu Chandra Poudel; Mittuniversitetet; []

    Sammanfattning : An integrated methodological approach is used to analyse the forest biomass production potential in the Middle Norrland region of Sweden, and its use to reduce carbon emissions. Forest biomass production, forest management, biomass harvest, and forest product use are analyzed in a system perspective considering the entire resource flow chains. LÄS MER
